Association of Staphylococcus aureus colonization with food allergy occurs independently of eczema severity

Staphylococcus aureus has been implicated in the pathophysiology of eczema, allergic rhinitis, asthma, and food allergy. S aureus is a marker of more severe eczema, which is a risk factor for food sensitization/allergy. Therefore it might be that the association between S aureus and food allergy in eczematous patients is related to eczema severity.

We report a rare case of vascular ring with Kommerell diverticulum leading to a misdiagnosis of asthma in a 39 ‐year‐old woman. Anomalies of the aortic arch associated with Kommerell diverticulum (KD) are rare congenital malformations. Symptomatic thoracic vascular rings presenting in adults are rare. We report a case of a 39 ‐year‐old woman who was diagnosed with uncontrolled asthma. She was complaining of worsening respiratory symptoms with dysphagia. Imaging studies and preoperative findings concluded to type II congenital anomaly of the aortic arch or Neuhauser's anomaly: a right‐sided aortic arch with aberra...

Authors: Yilmaz I, Türk M, Nazik Bahçecioğlu S, Tutar N, Gülmez I Abstract BACKGROUND: Oral corticosteroid (OCS) dependent severe eosinophilic asthma with chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (SEA-CRSwNP) would be a suitable phenotype for mepolizumab treatment. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the short-term efficacy of mepolizumab treatment on the OCS dependant SEA-CRSwNP Methods: Baseline and 24th-week results [daily OCS doses, asthma exacerbation frequency, asthma control test(ACT) scores, blood eosinophil levels, FEV1 values and numerical analog scale (NAS) of CRSwNP symptoms] of the patients th...
